Acne is sometimes thought of as a problem that affects the self-image and appearance of teenagers. However, a variety of factors can cause it can strike certain individuals at any age.

Common causes of adult acne can include changes in hormone levels and stress as well as environmental factors. Sometimes poor nutritional choices or simple lifestyle habits can increase your chances of suffering from frequent acne outbreaks.

Here at the Lux Spa in Chicago, Illinois, our aesthetician, Dawn Stringini offers several treatment options to help clear pores and reduce your chances of suffering acne outbreaks. In many of these cases a microdermabrasion treatment can help open and clear your pores while also stimulating your skin’s natural process of exfoliation.

The treatment typically takes around half an hour. It involves removing old skin cells from the upper layers of the dermis, which can help clear pores and stimulate the younger healthier cells to emerge from the lower dermal layers. The process can also help stimulate collagen production to restore some of your skin’s youthful elasticity.

If necessary, our aesthetician might recommend further treatments, such as a chemical peel to help improve the clarity of your skin.
